Sexual harassment



The University of Bern is committed to a non-discriminatory environment. It fights all forms of sexual harassment and discrimination based on gender. The aim of the University of Bern is to promote and demand a university culture of mutual respect and to keep the inhibition threshold for those affected to report an incident within the University of Bern as low as possible.

The next events will take place around 23 March 2022, the national day against sexual harassment at Swiss universities. 


Action week 2021

The action week against sexual harassment took place at the University of Bern from 30 April to 7 May 2021. Various events offered students, lecturers and staff the opportunity to deal with the topic of sexual harassment and to deepen their knowledge.
